Made with the highest quality waxy English Bridle leather, the Bristol is striking and incredibly hard wearing due to the heavy duty solid brass hardware. The hardware is permanently secured using brass saddler’s rivets which are reversed with the flat side up allowing smooth access for the end of the belt passing through the keeper. On the back, the burs of the rivets are peened with a hammer to secure.
The English Bridle leather is firm and strong, becoming more supple with use but never losing its strength. It really is classy stuff! Edges are beveled and burnished, but not dyed, leaving a contrast against the face of the belt. However dyed edges are an option if you are choosing the belt in black.

We make the belt for you, so will size it for you rather than using shop style generic sizing. The Aim is to determine your “Belt size” which is a different thing to your waist or trouser size. Once we have your belt size, we make your new belt so that it will fit you on the middle hole, giving you adjustment either way if ever needed.
There are two methods available to work out your belt size. Method 1, if understood and measured correctly, is by far the most accurate.
Measure an existing belt.
We ask you to measure a current belt from the end of the leather strap where it meets/starts to fold around the buckle (not including the buckle itself) all the way down to the HOLE YOU USE MOST/FITS YOU BEST.
This is your belt size.
Please note: The belt size is usually around 2″ bigger than your jeans size.
Add 3″ to your trouser size. For example, if you wear 32″ jeans, order a 35″ belt.
If in doubt over the belt size, go bigger, rather than smaller.
This method is not as accurate as method 1. However it maybe useful if you are buying the belt as a gift and know the recipients trouser size, but cannot measure one of their existing belts.
If you are still in doubt, feel free to email email@example.com to discuss.
If you would like your initials adding to the back of the buckle area (not visible when worn) please state this in the comments box when ordering.
